I learned Greek at the age of 52, and am working on a "use it or lose it" philosophy. In order to keep it up my, I have a daily Greek Reading Plan which I have used for the last three years to read through the New Testament in a year. This has worked well, but I have not been absorbing the text as well as I would like, so I am trying a new plan now where I do the following: 

Day 1: Reading 1 (e.g. Romans 1:1-18)

Day 2: Reading 1 + Reading 2 (e.g. Romans 1:18-32)

Day 3: Reading 2 + Reading 3

Day 4: Reading 3 + Reading 4

In this way, I reread each passage (and I have reduced the daily amount so that I read the whole thing every two years rather than every year). The only way I can find of making this happen is to set up two reading plans with identical parameters except that one starts the day after the other. While this works well for me, it does get a bit messy. Doing this has improved my learning and retention, and also works better devotionally as I meditate on each passage over a couple of days. I do wonder, however, if anyone has been this way before and come up with a better way of doing it within Logos? 

This isn't a complaint, criticism, or a request for a new feature, by the way! I am simply trying to work out if there's a better way of trying to achieve my goal.

If you look at these reading plans you might get an idea e.g. I tried a plan based on Mt 1:1 - Rev |  Mt 1:8 - Rev over 730 daily sessions which worked OK some of the time but ended up with the same two readings on one day! So I doubt you can achieve exactly what you want in a single plan

Thank you Dave - I can't believe I didn't think of that - it's certainly worth a bit of experimentation, and I don't mind it if I get the same passage appearing on the same day once or twice. Thank you very much.

Thank you very much Dave - that works perfectly except for the last few days, and when I'm reading the last few chapters of Revelation I'm never quite sure where I am anyway!  What I did was to offset the two sets by one day's reading.
